About the Talk Doneraile Court Restored: A Dream Realized:
Between 1976 and 1994 the restoration of one of Ireland’s most romantic country houses - Doneraile Court, Co Cork - was a major project for the Irish Georgian Society. Having secured the future of the building it was handed back to the Irish State, but the final restoration was not initiated until 2018. Under the auspices of the Irish Office of Public Works, the house has been fully refurbished and furnished with a remarkable collection of 18th century Irish art and will open at Easter 2023. The Irish Georgian Society continue their involvement and along with other public and private donors have ensured that this is one of the most exciting reincarnations of an Irish country house in recent times.
About The Irish Georgian Society:
The Irish Georgian Society promotes awareness and protection of Ireland’s architectural heritage, gardens and decorative arts. It achieves this through conservation projects that have saved many important historic buildings, through education programs that encompass seminars, publications and specialist tours, and through campaigning for the protection of endangered buildings.
